well that is counterproductive but now those who said that are doing that some are clearly showing that. they clearly show that they are just promoting their own but it is nice and economic interests for example. if you put in for example what it did what the u.s. congress did recently at all with the package of measures which awards russia and europe was clearly aimed against russia and the energy supply and its supply of energy to europe. if we see this unit in the diversification of an er just supplying us with and i would like to say once again that every country has its own political and economic and other interests the question is how to which means do you support him in the promote his interests we.
should in the modern world you cannot have a strategic success. i think spends of others if you cannot say that you are exceptional and you cannot. act without respect towards others this will not lead to any positive results are you particularly used to these but this is. it was the result of what we have. is but more instability more problems. and this happens and not the creation of a stable world order that will allow us to counteract the global challenges that all of humanity faces today with colleagues scientific and technical progress. and to give them lead to deep social. changes and changes in values and this opens up great possibilities but at the same time we have to find new answers to
a number of new questions when you get you know what will be. of human that in the human nature and robotics triangle how will the quality change what we will do. some of the. guards of nature can no longer exist yet how will medical doctors continue to operate in the future. when doctors will have absolute power over a human body or will the human intellect lose its power when artificial intelligence becomes an independence and the dependent subject. earlier when we evaluated the role of country. we talked about but it will ensure strategic power or natural resources for of course these factors remain as
important even today. that another important fact is just scientific and science and technology and this fact is going to become more and more i mean and you put it to you and that it's going to become even more rapid will you be the scientific. this will affect you for politics and security. and it's becoming. universally important in the world it's clear that you know technology is all by themselves can actually provide for sustainable development you cannot act without responsibility without freedom and without respect for traditional values and human dignity. because otherwise you will not end up with a brave new world you will end up with a totalitarian if you had to tear and society with
a lot of conflicts. because even today millions of people see that the world is unjust and that is why they are radical allies and they tried to change the world through any means including violence. and this has happened over the history of many countries including our country including russia you when after a successful industrial breakthrough because we saw dramatic events revolutions. in the future because. there were a lot of social problems that existed at that point and they weren't resolved when they had to be. these problems are always the responsibility of those where they want to protect the existing world order without wanting it to change but it is also
a responsibility of those who speeded. attention to any threats and risks their work and speaking about the russian revolution of nineteen seventeen if you can see. that its results were both negative and positive. there's quite a controversial issue but we can ask a question couldn't we move along through and by and by the method of evolution not revolution you couldn't tell we have saved all these human lives and just move to and just moved steadily towards the future. and even if you're not the model. there was applied when you get in that you in the years after the revolution was actually a positive stimulus throughout the world you can be created. in
new trends and huge developments. which benefited actually benefited mostly the west what do i mean by that not just geopolitical victories as a result of the so-called cold war. but it's a different thing. that. what i say that what i want to say is that. the west benefited a lot. through its competition with the soviet union and with the success of soviet union because it led to a lot of victories in terms of science and technology in terms of the rights of people in terms of the struggle against racial segregation and other social issues that existed in many western countries including the youth in the u.s. . and so after the. all the changes that happened in our countries
in the 1980's and nine hundred ninety s. we now have a chance to open up a new page of our history that walk you through. this period started after the dissolution of the soviet union in the unfortunately after that our. western partners said that they were the victors in the war in the cold war and now they believe they had the full rights to interfere into the mystic affairs of other countries and. export their. democratic values took it to other countries just like the soviet union did with its values before that it was saw an expansion of an expansionist policy from nato countries and the result is quite troubling
usually because we have lost a lot of opportunities and we have distrust and we have. deepened global does balance. and practice we see a lot of more. selfishness throughout the world yes we have international institutions and but their values are devalued. the. many international agreements are devalued because i have just been told just several hours ago the president of the united states on social media. made a statement about russia's cooperation. so you know all of that with the u.s. . in one of the most important areas in the area of nuclear cooperation. certainly it is one of the most important areas of
cooperation between our two countries because the russia and the u.s. are both responsible for the world as two greatest nuclear power. and i would like to use this opportunity to say in more detail with what's happened over this is decades. in this nuclear fear. it'll just take a couple of minutes in the nineteen nineties. a number of very significant international agreements were signed. in part in june ninety nine to two and the second one was aside on the agency of february of one thousand eight nineteen ninety three. on. your radio or. political. but by people most of these projects after the first agreement were over
the regard to control and protection of nuclear materials. and they were with regards to the station of. various materials and our american partners. and this is not some secret information just by the few people know about this six hundred ten twenty. six hundred twenty commissions the. laws on our war and surprises on our enterprises that when you deal with. with nuclear materials with your rainier with our secret facilities and they had access to our secret facilities this was basically. agreement and under the second agreement they made and the other one hundred seventy visits to
our facilities to the most secret areas of this facility is where materials were stored and. the. general electric company coal factory they was and they had a whole checkpoint there. and. had permanent work places where american specialists. came every day it was their job. so they visited these areas. of secrets russian facilities and they had american flags with us to use them i mean there was a list of one hundred american specialists from various organizations within the u.s. that had the right to make inspections. anywhere at any time at any facility and
they sold went over about ten years there was little issue and as part of this agreement. russia stopped using five hundred tons of. your rainier which is. north which is quite a lot and. if you nuclear this program became one of the most effective measures of. nuclear nonproliferation in the world. and each step was controlled by the american specialists the question is do we while the us itself reduce. their nuclear potential only by giving a little bit. yes our specialists our experts also visited american facilities but only when the american side agreed to that and on their conditions and that is
why you know as you can see. russia was open and russia trusted the west with them but we will talk about that in the future about what resulted from that you know when the shoe was on the. white motors altered from that is our national interests were completely ignored. do you see separatists in the caucasus region or supported. countries other countries acted with this will backed what are taken into account in the un resolutions and invaded other countries including iraq. well they just you know they just looked at what's happening in russia. and they decided. they would on one hour longer need to abide by international law that abide by international law and this
why this is why any stage you started. in we had a new agreement known in the us as the one hundred twenty three agreement on the nuclear. non-proliferation it was the way to later the u.s. retreated from this agreement. there was also an agreement on the ocean. so if you're going to put on the. the disposal of plutonium which. you have since the year which included. changing the state of your plutonium that would not allow it to use as arms again you hear that. any are the. possible sale changes to this agreement to were allowed only if all the sides agreed to that so what did russia do. we developed.
all the technologies that we needed to abide by this agreement. and we created a nuclear reactor that allowed us to use to dispose of this nuclear fuel so we did everything as we promised it but what did our american colleagues do they started constructing a facility. and some on a river at the door. if you were they spent about eight billion dollars on that that it is going to see me just put it in they finished the constructions. until that was done by seventy percent and then they stopped. doing anything. because they just froze this project and if you were to win you can see. even more money is going to be spent.
to freeze this project. that way why did they do that. yes something like this happens in our country as well one project rosen but what we're interested in is what happened to tony i'm going to raney i'm. word that is opposed of. all the issues it turns out it was only you knew what was disposed of through a different means it was dumped somewhere and buried and this is not the way we signed the agreement option. because of russia signed an agreement. jan ings the testing of nuclear weapons but the us did not sign this agreement in two thousand and two. the us laughed out
of the missile defense treaty. so. they themselves initiated the agreements on chemical weapons and a number of other agreements but they don't not abide by the norms laid down in this agreements between. the u.s. is more. to dispose of their chemical weapons by two thousand and twenty seven not by two thousand and seven as they promised to do for that to me. and so this is not something you would expect from a country that says that. someone mentions but it is that is he supports nuclear and chemical nonproliferation to go to do shoes that would ask me . quite a lot to promote to how the international security but our western media and
our estimate western partners and i speak in saying ask you to not look at that and to not notice that when you. even though the nuclear and chemical arsenal that we have disposed of was able to destroy the world several times over. what we need to be doing is looking to the past. of course while we're talking about the past to was to. understand how the current situation functions and we need to. make it so that the world is governed not by a small group of. special countries but by everyone we have to have a new institutions we have to be open. to and
able to quickly react to a changing environment. especially today when everything is changing and very fast and that humanity has never been as fall as before and we've never had such power over nature over communications. because. this power is very apparent dispersed between the various governments and individuals. and of course it would be very difficult to make a unified. infrastructure. of all of this and russia is ready to engage in such work colleagues as we can see the future of the world order and global governments. by twenty forty five for
example the un the world markets one hundred year anniversary of the gratian of the u.n. i was a symbol that it's showing that humanity is able to create norms and rules that out of one. abide by and when they do not abide by them they face negative consequences over several decades that we had seen at attempts. to discredit this organization. or even control that all of these attempts. as expected were thwarted when you would believe that the u.n. or government needs to remain at the center of the international system and we will do everything to support that support this organization but as for the veto rights . that russia has said that was the one we would like to remind you that this mechanism was designed so as to prevent clashes between powers of the world so
that not. all of us so that a single country even the most powerful country cannot legitimize its aggressive action is if it's because well clearly there are a lot of experts here and they must know that it's. the u.n. had to legitimize some of the aggressive actions after they happened but before this wasn't good this will not lead to anything that we need to see reform reforms inside the u.n. mission there have to have to have you know and evolutionary nature and they have to include a consensus between all the members of the u.n. in the community. and most of the sovereign countries of the world are represented
in the u.n. and all of the principles of the u.n. need to remain because there is no other institution that can reflect all the diversity of international politics and today we're seeing new alliances new. places of power. with new agreements and you can not unify the world completely but i need to harmonize it and it's. motor corporation there are going to be you when you both may be there are various institutions acting all the continents but they have to coordinate their efforts with the un as well and between themselves and they have to respect them all the principles your skin muslims and the cultural norms and values of every region. we need to remain open while at the same time preserving the cultural identity of every region more you need to treat sovereignty as the bases of the system of international relations
colleagues no matter. how much. well science allows us to reach in the world it is humans that we do all the progress of our future which can only be something that we create together we cannot have a separate future at least not in the modern world. and the responsibility to make this world devoid of conflict is something that. is in the hands of the international community and as you know there is. a youth and students forum and saw that is taking place right now where young people are discussing relevant issues they're not impeded by their differences cultural national racial differences they all believe that the lives of future generations will be more free
and secure than even that he was the older generations and this is our responsibility to do everything so that we this hopes do come true thank you so much for your attention. that was president vladimir putin speaking at a plane or a session at the annual valdai. in the russian. that some of those points that president putin raised a lot of it was all about foreign policy and the underlying spirit of cooperation on the korean crisis he emphasized resolution through dialogue the cat's line crisis also an internal issue that should dialogue on both sides it touched on global economic policy is another global issues such as science and cultural values as well as trade agreements such as the nuclear agreement about which he spoke at length and also he gave his supporters russia's support for the strength and cooperative powers of the u.n. moving on to other news the spanish government is plan is planning talks on
triggering article one point five on saturday which would revoke catalonia as autonomy was time and follows the catalan leader's confirmation in a letter sent to spain's prime minister this thursday that the region's declaration of independence was not cancelled but suspended this is pension remains in place if the government insists on preventing dialogue continues its repression the catalan parliament may go ahead if appropriate with a formal vote on the declaration of independence well this came after spain had initially demanded that catalonia terrified the region's position on independence by monday which didn't happen and the next deadline for the castle on a leader to proclaim whether the region would break away expired today well score one five five allows the spanish government to act if any autonomous community fails to obey the constitution the government should ask for the senate's approval and once this is given that it will then be able to give orders to that community was by his prime minister has threatened to use the article against the council on
regional government several times. we formally require the catalan government to confirm if it has declared the independence of catalonia after the deliberate confusion created over whether it has come into a fresh implement it's not difficult it is just to answer a simple question have you do clear of the independence of catalonia or not. well the referendum on independence was held on the first of october an overwhelming majority of those who cast their ballots voted in favor of society should that they also soar scenes of violence as police exerted brutal force against voters well spain has seen mass protests and increased tension since then of pro unity supporters took to the streets of mass alone on wednesday night for a finish an m.e.p. for the u.k. independence party fears the decision to revoke catalan autonomy may have regrettable consequences. we can now cross
live to actor lopez both a professor of law who's in barcelona actor thank you very much indeed for joining us i mean and also for waiting as you have there so do you expect the spanish government to trivial article one five five on saturday. yes. everything indicates that they are going to treat. one hundred fifty five for the constitution. but the other question if it is if they are going to open it in a constitutional way because what likely right now is that they are trying to activate such article in order to suspend. me according to the constitutional doctrine in any tanami cannot be suspended unless the. chair or on amending the constitution had been treated or it.
that point the one hundred fifty would be insufficient to little good but it would be not enough to suspend the cattle on the economy. are the plants off the. spanish wall or. not that's ahead in just in case you go ahead i mean more developments do you think would follow if spain. spain. to go that would mean that. it would be open to a some kind of dialogue with the catalan government which is what is being claimed by the. president and by the catalan seem to show that i mean if you do shouldn't have. to suspend the question of you dep and then you know look the five . ways to. conclude some kind of agreement
a whether on the. island as a status within the spain or whether on the separation but. until now. the spanish. renaud hostile stance for two with menaces three think. triggering the article one hundred fifty five so it's not likely. to. change. towards the. government on the cuttle on the level of bring up and that's more. severe do you think that there will eventually be dialogue between the two sides and how do you think it would take for them to actually get to the table and start talking about it we have before that there is talk behind the scenes but how long before there is a public dialogue. no there is no public dialogue on until i know there is no secret dialogue between the spanish government and undercut the longarm and i think that there would there would just be some kind of dialogue if some
international art or. dispute. it would how do i do it to be the european union or some european body. but until now they have. been behind the spanish government. reaction. they have to be could the spanish government position and. they have refused to get into some kind of mediation between catalonia and spain needed their thank you very much indeed for talking to us and for waiting is our best but feel a professor of law at the pump a father university in barcelona thank you very much indeed. well this channel has once again found itself at the center of a scandal artes and hurts in the london underground have provoked an angry reaction
from a high ranking labor party m.p. the times claims the party is now demanding the u.k.'s media watchdog off calm investigates the ad campaign with more honest i see a check in at a knife in line why the nastiest so what is this claim based on. well ok to get another case of r t scandalising a poll a labor politician here in the u.k. as well as the times newspaper why all due to its ad campaign where we've seen yet another r t bashing piece appear in the times with a headline quote kremlin t.v. adverts on tube trigger call for off common choir and quote note how they're not even saying kremlin backed or kremlin sponsored it's just kremlin t.v. at this point and in this article is the time reports on how the deputy leader of the labor party has requested that off calm which is the u.k.'s broadcast regulator that doesn't even actually deal with advertising issues investigate russia's latest
ad campaign on on the london underground which features posters along the lines of missed the train lost a vote blame it on us but it seems that the times weren't amused they called these ads ironic using these quotations even though clearly the ads were in fact intended to be ironic and what's even makes the story even better is that this times article claims that r.t. had denied to comment but in reality it was a little bit of a different story let's take a look two questions do you wish to respond to this complaint which advertising agency created the adverts for what they made in house. high probably not much point in responding to a complaint to an authority that does not regulate out of two advertising campaign was to find its in-house by the other team and fully proved by all u.k. vendettas we are glad to say many in the u.k. are engaging with advertising understood thanks for the swift response.
the times is unhealthy obsession with r.t. as evidenced by almost daily publications about how channel appears to have reached truly troubling levels when they are willing to blatantly lie about declining to comment simply when they get a comment that doesn't fits the hysterical span we want what the u.k. prints regulates and might have to say about that well lo obviously none of those comments for some reason ended up making it into this article and it's curious that the times reports on the deputy a labor party leader saying that he wants r.t. investigated given that to jeremy corbyn the late labor party leader himself was a very frequent guest on r.t. before he became party leader including having endorsed the channel on twitter
let's take a look. i am very concerned this increase in u.s. bombardment of syria without as i understand it any legal basis. what we've done is involve herself in a civil war. well israel has been. grabbing land from the palestinians ever since not in any sense an international law well this of these are german corbin's comments on r t before he became labor party leader now it has to be said that this latest call from a deputy labor party leader to investigate r.t. comes just days after boris johnson who is a conservative m.p. and also of course foreign secretary here in the u.k. went ahead and bashed labor m.p.'s for being too lenient towards r t let's take a look. if you study the output of russia today and indeed if you consider
the state of the of the prince in russia this present it is an absolute it is russia today it is a scandal it is a scoundrel that members of the party opposite continuing to to validate to validate and lead you to meet. that kind of propaganda by doing all those programs well of course johnson's comments of course can also be seen as quite ironic given that his own father had appeared on r t just recently but you know it has to be said that we are seeing all of this reaction and all of this commentary on r t in less than a week from both the conservative and the labor party and the times newspaper going out and so certainly r.t. has been getting lots of attention here in the u.k. . and certainly has an associate check in now in london thank you very much indeed . well to discuss this further we're joined by the host of r.t.s.
going underground our own title there given the circumstances afshin rattansi action thank you very much indeed for joining me well as we've been hearing there from the us to labor party members not infrequent guests on your show so did this attack by the by labor members are almost r.t. and course a surprise to you. yeah it comes as a bro it would come as a surprise if the leader of the labor party german corben leader of the largest socialist movement in western europe made remarks like his deputy i think sources telling me that this could be the beginning of the end of the deputy leader the labor body tom watson already i mean we were just playing those clips of his leader defying neo-con orthodoxy and saying voicing his opposition to war is in so many different countries tom watson he supported the iraq war the libya war the vote to bomb syria opposing jeremy corbyn tom watson
only some months ago was seeking to sources told national newspapers here trying to depose he was trying to depose german corbin already had a person in mind caroline flint and we were salsa remember that tom watson according to the leader of the largest trade union in this country represented representing so many millions of workers then mccluskey a good supporter of jeremy corbett he said tom watson is sharpening his knife looking for a back to stab when you have enemies as tom watson does such as the in a circle arguably of the neighbor party that alone the leader of the largest trade union in this country you know you have problems for him to write a letter to the regulator of television programming casting doubt on adverts placed by r t u k shows not only incompetence it also shows arguably an attitude to free speech that is not. it doesn't work with being deputy leader of
a labor party some i believe what i think it is after never seen this increasing number of attacks on r.t. . well i suppose they feel a bit threatened to be the only. answer to that question it is interesting that we've seen a resurgence of these attacks and of course viewing figures for mainstream media channels have been going down young people many of them don't even watch t.v. on a t.v. anymore r.t. as you know is the first news channel on the internet to reach five billion views this kind of think disconcerts elites in this country tom watson deputy leader of the labor party it concerns him a great deal we must also add that of course r.t. u.k. gave voice to germany corbin's side of the labor party when mainstream media journals don't now it is german cotton doesn't appear a lot to u.k. maybe he's frightened himself of the u.k.'s alternative view and the idea of
questioning more when it comes to britain and stories around the world and it's also not just political leaders is i mean why do you think it is that the times chose to ignore artie's response or even claimed that the channel declined to comment. ironic because the murdoch terms of office it's owned by rupert murdoch so again the deputy leader who put it on the same side as rupert murdoch obviously carries the channel on his sister a box system of the sky. means of being able to watch r t so something something is worrying those at the times i think we should also add that there is a growing fear in nato nations stoked by people like tom watson that russia can somehow using media like r t overthrow democracies in nato nations is now being blamed not only for getting all trump into the white house but for everything from the catalan referendum to the victory of the far right in nato
nations dog and i said nations i mean it's look at what hillary clinton said as well she said about the r.t.i. i'd see listed them among the alleged threats coming from russia let's just take a listen to what she had to say yet you've even seen the ads in a london underground from one russian state funded propaganda source bragging watch arche and find out that we are planning to happen what do you think those advertising slogans can really be evidence of russian interference of other t.v. networks are available obviously as bought of the free principle of free speech and that other networks advertise freely around the world why would they want to curb the advertising of a television station that gives an outlet for so many voices both mainstream and those not usually given a chance to give their voice on the mainstream i mean i should also out of course
that these critics of r.t. this seem to have it both ways on the one hand they say hardly anyone watches this channel that we're on. the same time he has the power to unseat presidents and prime ministers around the world. indeed fascinating stuff afshin rattansi aussie's host of going on the ground thank you very much indeed thank you i will be back after the short break. of it is i will not be here that. much as you. always get up here let's little. you. hate. being but does. she just tell you the other side of the mike on the. by then got a session on the nod that they know. by then is
a shift the long. ball are stuck in the mccain audience out and most is going on want. certainly not so with. that you know she was your be how did it all multiple injuries among current enough to soak up the good stuff you hope the book but it shows real you know mars on the phone to the book and even book a political symbol so this is a year but i don't know it's a book of morals and what my. own admitted nothing of. us allowed me. somethin that made you walk. down long enough something not set it. on the market until it was look my that's what i can now maybe i may be on the beach florida.
oh. this is. the. welcome back to suicide bombers and several gunmen have killed forty three soldiers and injured nine others in the attack on a military base in afghanistan's kandahar province local journalist clouseau ari has the latest on the attack claimed by the taliban extremist group the ministry of
defense has issued a statement saying last night around two fifty attackers targeted a base in the district of my one killing at least forty three soldiers wounding six of them are missing a clearly this sort of attacks or a huge blow to the morale of the afghan national security forces if these attacks are only increasing this is the third attack this week in which the taliban have used on the town vs packing them with explosives and driving them. against major military bases i think what we're seeing is a very deliberate shift of strategy and part of the militants almost for a year or so now where they're taking the fight to cities and creating another headache another front for the afghan government and its international allies. well the taliban still controls a large portion of the country despite years of afghan and american military
operations to eradicate them however the group is apparently growing training more provinces over the last sixteen years and since the stone age of twenty seventeen the taliban has carried out many deadly attacks. international relations professor jamal wakim believes that with the taliban recovering the u.s. is losing control over the situation in the country. but we ran unlike other
terrorist groups it was for a dime a political party and it was a ruling party in afghanistan that will the whole country so i believe the fall of the surge started giving. afghani police. the or thought it did that was imposed by american occupation and i'm gonna stand this of course undermines american control of this country. a controversial russian artist is facing arson charges in france following his latest stunt on sunday night he set fire to the door of a bank in paris or in ski was arrested on the spot and placed in a police psychiatric unit he wanted i remain in custody until his court hearing his wife was also arrested. for more on this story i'm now joined live by artie's france correspondent charlotte do bensky who's at the bank itself was
high there last year it was the story behind this prank. well as you said kate i'm here outside the bank that the russian performance artist . ski's set fire to on sunday night he posted pictures of himself actually setting fire to this building and was then taken in by the police now he was first put into a psychiatric unit so the doctors could assess his mental state before he was then released just a few hours ago within a very short time after being released from that psychiatric unit he then was charged with causing criminal damage to this property here in the basti in france now his lawyer has said that this was a protest over the judicial process here in france but he actually posted on some social media networks himself that the bankers i.e. the bank of france to have taken place of the monarch's and so he wanted to take
place here in the basti because this is of course the place where the revolution in france took place many many years ago now he is a controversial figure not just here in france but also in his native russia which he fled early this year after facing allegations of sexual assault now he then claimed that he wanted to get political asylum here in france saying that if he had stayed in russia then he would have been jailed for his anti government views he then was granted political asylum in france now i said he's been a controversial figure and that's because he has staged many infamous acts in his time as being what he describes as being a performance artist including cutting off his ear in what he said was a protest against repressive psychiatry in his native russia and later he also set fire in november two thousand and fifteen to the door of the federal security
services headquarters in moscow now he has had political asylum since. a few months ago here in paris and the headlines of this story have been generated across the world many people interested in this political dissident use now carrying out criminal acts not just in russia but here you know in france if you take a look at some of the headlines news organizations across the world have been covering this story including some saying russian artist in psychiatric unit obviously he's now being released from one faces those charges of criminal damage a russian artist charged paris blank place just some of the ways that this is being covered and it has seen a different say that this thirty three year old who is a political asylum here in france has moved from being what is a political dissident to now facing criminal charges in this country. trying to do bensky in paris thank you very much indeed. now back to our top story
russia's president vladimir putin has just finished speaking out of playing recession at the annual valdai discussion prague in the russian resort of sochi what more amounts we're going to cross a line down your balkans in sochi well hi there danielle so what is it that the president had to say. ok that was a very broad and detail speech covering many of the aspects covered over the last few days here at the valdai i think tank discussion club you could say perhaps many analysts over the next few days will draw some comparisons between putin speech at the twenty four team of eldara summit perhaps less so what the twenty two thousand and seven munich speech perhaps lacking some of the russian foreign policy policy elements of those speeches but certainly not lacking in the criticism. of much perceived western double standards and ypocras see in the context certainly of geopolitical affairs covered some of the key issues of today's political
environment namely the situation in catalonia korea and also the situation in the middle east lonia he said that what's going on there with spain's recent decision madrid's recent decision to potentially take away the region's autonomy he said this was an internal spanish matter but he also said that the e.u. who of course have not been supportive of the castle and independence movement should have seen these tensions and contradictions come quite a while ago and foreseen this happening take a listen. to this because when you catalonia situation shows the unanimous condemnation of all of those freedom fighters by the e.u. and a number of other countries in this regard this i would like to underscore you should have thought about this before hand has no one ever heard of those century long contradictions in europe you were aware of that. now he also said that post breakup of the soviet union in the early ninety's the west had an opportunity to align with within russia a friend
a strategic partner ally get the west reveled in its victory in the cold war reveled in its newfound power and in some ways he said undertook the role that the soviet union previously had in exporting socialist ideals and socialist revolution in exporting their own version of those ideals as well. as to. stop soon moved to work. with cold there were no good. beginning to intrude into the internal affairs they begin to explore democracy just as the soviet leadership tried to export each socialist revolution polocrosse the world. well some scathing criticism of also western foreign policy in the middle east primarily in syria where he said that instead of pretending to fight terrorism
and making some sort of symbolic gestures to fight terrorism real corporation was needed to truly defeat. in that region and that so far has been lacking on north korea as well that's an issue of course he was impossible not to touch upon given of course trumps. recent rhetoric regarding the tensions on the korean peninsula he said threats use of force insults trading insults are not the way forward only dialogue is the way to deal with north korea emphasizing of course that russia is very much opposed to the north korean nuclear test and supports all decisions taken within the framework of the u.n. security council but nothing beyond that no intervention no use of force increases in heated rhetoric so very much a broad speech calling it a broad discussions that are taking place at the club of course it will be interesting to see what political analysts make of this speech over the next couple
of days and we'll wait and wait on the analysis there daniel hawkins in such a thank you very much indeed thank you. now in the u.s. florida's governor has declared a state of emergency ahead of a rally by white nationalists this thursday among the speakers at the event will be richard spencer he was one of the organizers of august far right rally in charlottesville in virginia where one person was killed and nineteen injured well florida university where the rally is taking place plans to spend half a million dollars on increased security bus routes have also been shut down and nearby buildings closed or counseling is also being offered to those worried by the rally. well almost three thousand people have signed up for an anti spencer event posted on facebook activists have also launched a petition to ban the rally already receiving several thousand signatures well the state is on edge about potential violence between the two sides the event has again
raised the issue of deep divisions in us society when media in the us are linking the rise of these divisions and a disturbing number of hate crimes to donald trump's presidency several help groups have reported a sharp rise since his inauguration yet in some cases so-called hate crimes have turned out to be due to deliberate provocation as miguel francis santiago explains seems like there's been a lot of talk about hate crime in america i mean it's just pop culture these days to be a victim isn't it in new york a jewish man reported to the police that swastika is were spray painted on his home i was horrified i thought to myself well the head could do something crazy like this and guess what it was fake according to local jewish leaders mr king wasn't even jewish himself local authorities did know that he falsely reported hate crime is just as bad as a real crime but it doesn't end there a professor at the indiana state university claimed he was receiving and muslim
threats via e-mail he also told the police that at university he was physically assaulted now this sparked a frenzy throughout the campus the university doesn't tolerate intolerance if someone has experienced an intolerance act either in person or by e-mail or by phone we encourage them to reported to law enforcement with oh no they all wound up over nothing but another hoax the most a geisha didn't find any witnesses to the u.s. attack and later the cyber department found out the professor himself sent out those muslim hate mails. based upon the investigation there is no belief that hussein was trying to gain sympathy by becoming a victim of unseen muslim threats which he had created himself playing the victim way out in the me hind bars and here is one more case for you joshua witt called the police to report a stabbing because the attacker and his own words mistook him for a neo nazi so apparently i look like
a neo nazi and got stabbed for it luckily i put my hands up to stop it so he only stabbed my hand. but what really happened is joshua bought a pocket money for the nearby store and accidently stabbed himself in the arm so he came up with the way to hide the embarrassing situation by playing the victim of a hate crime and sometimes it gets as weird as this earlier this month a michigan state university student found a new saying on her door and immediately thought it was an act of intimidation and reported to the campus authorities i want to be clear this type of behavior is not tolerated on our campus and noose is a symbol of intimidation and threat that has a horrendous history in america well it turned out to be a tad more innocent turns out the news that was found hanging outside a dorm room was actually just a leather shoes lace and messy says the shoelace and its match found outside the dorm were packaged in a way that someone could perceive them to look similar to a noose one of the most powerful of emotions one of the most powerful and frankly
one of the most destructive emotions is the idea of victimhood certainly there are ways to even get money from the government for being a victim there are ways to get other benefits for being a victim and so they gather there's definitely something to that and i think that is incredibly destructive i would say that the first answer a wiser or such a rise in fake a crimes is that they want to square that dollar strong there's a hole in their invested in this narrative that donald trump is responsible for creating this wave of hate crimes because he's emboldening the racist he's a racist himself he's a white supremacist according to this narrative by the left so therefore they want to show that he's a bold in these races so therefore they want to publish that crimes to make it seem like that's the case more news after this short break.
the big difference between trump. president obama policy president obama was in gauging iran on the regional issues he was gauging the theater on like you know i can go on to come to international negotiations and see the. president try and use. confrontation all both confrontation with iran in the region . in case you're new to the game this is how it works in that the economy is built around corners corporations from washington to washington to meet. the media. voters elected businessman to run this country business
equals power. must it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before. spain prepares to revoke catalonia is autonomy off to the region's leader confirms its declaration of independence was suspended not counseled. ati's adverts on the london underground draw a host of reactions including britain's foreign secretary and reconsider the party taking the council's comments literally. and a controversial russian artist granted political asylum in france faces also in charges after a second a bank one and. this
is an international coming to life from moscow on cape partridge thank you for joining us. the spanish government is planning talks on triggering article one five five on saturday which would revoke catalonia autonomy the statement follows the council on leaders confirmation in a letter sent to spain's prime minister this thursday that the region's declaration of independence was not cancelled but suspended this is french and remains in place if the government insists on preventing dialogue continues its repression the council and parliament may go ahead if appropriate with a formal vote on the declaration of independence well this came after spain had initially demanded that catalonia clarified the region's position on independence by monday which didn't happen and the next deadline for the catalan leader to betray whether the region would break away expired today. well article one five
five allows the spanish government to act if any autonomous community fails to obey the constitution the government should ask for the senate's approval and once this is given madrid will then be able to give orders to that community spain's prime minister has threatened to use the article against the castle and reasonal government several times we formally require the catalan government to confirm if it has declared the into balance of catalonia after the deliberate confusion created over whether it has come into a fresh implement it's not difficult it is just to answer a simple question have you declared the independence of catalonia or not. well the referendum on independence was held on the first of october an overwhelming majority of those who cast their ballots voted in favor of secession well the day also saw scenes of violence as police exerted brutal force against voters this plane has seen mass protests and increased tensions since then thousands of priority supporters took to the streets of bass alone on wednesday night and ray
french an m.e.p. for the u.k. independence party fears the decision to revoke catalan autonomy may have requested all consequences that are going to be drier police in the streets of the cities and you know we we can see cheering gas rubber bullets being deployed again we had almost a thousand people injured in the last well it's going to get much wish if this punished government insists on withdrawing the rights of the council and people should govern in shoals the fact is as with all of these types of issues the best thing to do is go to some form of arbitration i understand the castle and president has already offered to do show i would think that the spanish government in the interests of their own people in the interests of spanish unity should actually a cheetah and a whip through the speciation. to suicide bombers and several gunmen have killed forty three soldiers and injured nine others in an
attack on a military base in afghanistan's kandahar province local journalist so ari has the latest on the attack claimed by the taliban extremist group the ministry of defense has issued a statement saying last night around two fifty attackers targeted a base in the district of maya one killing at least forty three soldiers wounding nine six of them are missing and clearly these sort of attacks or huge blow to the morale of the afghan national security forces if these attacks are only increasing this is. the third time this week in which the taliban have used armored humvees packing them with explosives and driving them. against major military bases i think what we're seeing is a very deliberate shift of strategy on part of the militants almost for a year or so now where they're taking the fight to cities and creating another
headache another front for the afghan government and its international allies well the taliban still controls a large portion of the country despite years of afghan and american military operations to eradicate them the group is apparently growing claiming more provinces over the last sixteen years and since the start of twenty seventeen the taliban has carried out many deadly attacks. international relations professor jamal wakim believes that with the taliban
recovering the us is losing control over the situation in afghanistan. unlike other groups it was for a political party and it was the ruling party and i'm going to stand that the whole country so i believe. that we should go to give the. police. the or thought it did that was imposed by a medical crew patient and i'm going to stand this of course undermines american control of this country. now this channel has once again found itself at the center of a scandal artie's absolutes in the london underground have provoked an angry reaction from a high ranking labor party m.p. and the times claims the party is now demanding the u.k.'s media watchdog of com investigates the us campaign was more an associate you're going to reports from london and another case of r t scandalising apart
a labor politician here in the u.k. as well as the times newspaper why all due to its ad campaign where we've seen no are at yet another r t bashing piece of pier in the times with a headline quote kremlin t.v. adverts on tube trigger call for off common choir and quote note how they're not even saying kremlin backed or kremlin sponsored it's just kremlin t.v. at this point and in this article is the time reports on how the deputy leader of the labor party has requested that off calm which is the u.k.'s broadcast regulator that doesn't even actually deal with advertising issues investigate russia's latest ad campaign on on the london underground which features posters along the lines of code that missed the train lost a vote blame it on us but it seems that the times weren't amused they called these ads ironic using these quotations even though clearly the ads were in fact intended to be iran. nick and what's even makes the story even better is that this times
article claims that r.t. had denied to comment but in reality it was a little bit of a different story with two questions do you wish to respond to this complaint which advertising agency created the adverts for art to see what they made in house. high probably not much point in responding to a complaint to an authority that does not regulate out of door advertising the out campaign was developed in-house by the other team and fully proved by all u.k. vendettas we are glad to say many in the u.k. are engaging with our advertising understood thanks for swift response. the times is unhealthy obsession with r.t. as evidenced by almost daily publications about how channel appears to have reached truly troubling levels when they are willing to blatantly lie about conning to
commence simply when they get to comments that doesn't fit the hysterical span we want to know what the u.k. prints regulates and might have to say about that well lo obviously none of those comments for some reason ended up making it into this article and it's curious that the times reports on the deputy a labor party leader saying that he wants r t investigated given that to jeremy corbyn the late labor party leader himself was a very frequent guest on r t before he became party leader including having endorsed the channel on twitter let's take a look. i am very concerned this increase in u.s. bombardment of syria without as i understand it any legal basis. what we've done is involve herself in a civil war. well israel has been grabbing land from the palestinians ever since not in forty eight in the sense of international law now it has to be said that
this latest call from a deputy labor party leader to investigate r.t. comes just days after boris johnson who is a conservative m.p. and also of course foreign secretary here in the u.k. went ahead and bashed labor m.p.'s for being too lenient towards r t let's take a look if you study the output of of russia today it is a scandal it is a scoundrel that members of the party opposite are continuing to validate to validate and lead you to meet. that kind of propaganda by doing all those programs well of course johnson's comments of course can also be seen as quite ironic given that his own father had appeared on r t just recently but you know what has to be said that we are seeing all. all of this reaction and all of this commentary on r t in less than a week from both the conservative and the labor party and the times newspaper going at it so certainly our team has been getting lots of attention here in the u.k.
and while on a visit to britain hillary clinton also jumped on the anti answer listing them among the alleged threats coming from russia. maybe you've even seen the ads in the london underground from one russian state funded propagandists are worth bragging watch our t.v. and find out who we are planning to hack next mrs clinton has never recovered from the fact that the american voters rejected her unquote right they were to do short to blame russia to blame poker more to blame anyone but themselves is of course par for the course in western politicians. a controversial russian artist is facing also charges in france following his latest stunt on sunday night he set fire to the door of a bank in paris. he was arrested on the spot and placed in a police psychiatric unit he will now remain in custody until his court hearing his
wife was also arrested. well for more on this story i'm now joined by our correspondent shot at. the bank itself why there lotty so what's the story behind this latest prank. well this russian conformance artist set fire to this bank behind me here in the basti on twenty he said that bankers were the new monarchy however a lawyer for the performance artists said that this was a protest against the french just to system now he's not just a controversial figure here in france he's also a controversial figure in russia and that's because he's carried out very similar acts in the past that are let's have a take a look at the fact that he wants cut off part of this is saying that he was protesting against the press if psychiatry in russia and another time back in two
thousand and fifteen in the november he actually set fire to the door of the federal security service in russia now following the incident in paris he was. first admitted into a psychiatric unit where he was assessed for his mental capability and once being released would not be then it was a charge by the police with causing not criminal damage here in france now he has claimed political asylum being granted political asylum here in france after he fled to russia after he was facing sexual assault allegations now he said that he claimed up political asylum because he said that his anti government views would have landed him in prison in new russia had he not been able to flee to france and this is a case of this attracted attention all over the world with a headline saying things like russian artist in psychiatric unit which he was over the last few days russian artists charged over a barrel of paris a bank
a place and the reality is he's now gone from being a political dissident to what seems to be somebody who is facing some serious criminal charges here in france. in a train carriage have china do bensky in paris thank you very much president putin's been speaking at the annual evolve our discussion club here in russia we'll have all the latest after the break. we're going to walk so you on the idea of dropping bombs brings produce to the chicken hawks forcing you to fight the battles they're going. to do so are prone to tell you that will be gossip and probably worthwhile for the most important news today. while i'm off the bat retires and tell me you are not cool enough unless you
a. well i don't know so what's new from the president. well kate certainly a very detailed broad speech covering the many issues that have been discussed at the velo club over the last few days and many analysts perhaps will draw parallels with putin's famous speech of twenty four team back here at the club or perhaps even the munich speech of two thousand and seven lacking the elements perhaps of future russian foreign policy but nevertheless very critical of perceived double standards and hypocrisy by western powers he touched upon some key issues of the day beginning with the crisis in catalonia saying that the reasons behind it did not emerge very recently but of the brewing for many years take a listen security is going to move the catalonia situation shows the unanimous condemnation of all of those freedom fighters by the e.u. and a number of other countries in this regard this i would like to underscore you should have thought about this before hand has no one ever heard of those century long
contradictions in europe you were aware of that. sure you were but you even welcome the collapse of a number of states and europe and you are not hiding the fact that you were happy about that but why were you so thoughtless and using this political situation and to appease the big brother from washington to support the separation of kosovo so unanimously provoking such processes in other regions of europe and the world. so it isn't strong words from the russian president they're also touching upon the topic of lost opportunity in the early one nine hundred ninety s. when the soviet union collapsed he said that the west could have found a friend and ally a partner to cooperate with russia instead the west chose to revel in its victory exporting its own perceived values as the soviet union once did many years ago actually used up with me but unfortunately our western partners after inheriting part of the collapsed u.s.s.r. thought that they were right and proclaimed themselves the winners of the cold war
they begin to intrude into internal affairs they begin to explore democracy just as the soviet leadership was trying to export ideas of socialist revolution all across the world thinks. touching upon the issues of the conflict rather in the middle east in particular syria he said that many western powers have no real interest in a regulation of the conflict in resolving it rather trying to control the chaos to further their own means having no real interest in actually fighting and defeating terrorism represented in this case by myself. as they're known also touching a ball a topic of north korea a particularly salient one given the us president's recent rhetoric over the past weeks he said that this is a threat faced by the whole world and russia condemns the nuclear tests conducted by north korea within the framework of the un national security council but not beyond that saying that the way forward here was for dialogue and compromise not
for. violent action for intervention for heated rhetoric and for threats from all sides so that comment there will be very interesting to see what i list of course make of the speech over the coming days and of course putin will now take some questions from the audience which will bring you highlights of as they come in thank you very much indeed can you hawkins in such a thank you. for me while in the u.s. florida's governor has declared a state of emergency ahead of a rally by white nationalists this thursday among the speakers at the event will be richard spencer he was one of the organizers of august far right rally in charlottesville in virginia where one person was killed and nineteen injured. well florida university where the rally is taking place plans to spend half a million dollars on increased security bus routes have also been shut down and nearby buildings closed counseling is also being offered to those worried by the rally well almost three thousand people have signed up for an anti spencer event
posted on facebook activists have also launched a petition to ban the rally already receiving several thousand signatures while the state is on edge about potential violence between the two sides eventers again raised the issue of deep divisions in us society media in the us are linking the rise of these divisions and a disturbing number of hate crimes to donald trump's presidency several health groups have reported a sharp rise since his inauguration yet in some cases so-called hate crimes have turned out to be due to deliberate provocation as miguel francis santiago explains it seems like there's been a lot of talk about hate crime in america i mean it's just pop culture these days to be a victim isn't it in new york a jewish mayor reported to the police that's why stickers were spray painted on his home i was horrified i thought to myself all the heck could do something crazy like this and guess what it was fake according to local jewish leaders mr king wasn't
even jewish himself local authorities did know that he falsely reported a hate crime is just as bad as a real crime but it doesn't and there are a professor at the indiana state university claimed he was receiving anti a muslim threats via e-mail he also told the police that at university he was physically assaulted now this sparked a frenzy throughout the campus the university doesn't tolerate intolerance if someone has experienced an intolerance act either in person or by e-mail or by phone we encourage them to reported to law enforcement. oh no they all wound up over nothing but another hoax investigation didn't find any witnesses to the alleged attack and later the cyber department found out the professor himself sent out those muslim hate mails based upon this to geisha there is no belief that hussein was trying to gain sympathy by becoming a victim of unseen muslim threats which he had created himself playing the victim
when in the me hind bars and here is one more case for you joshua witt called the police to report a stabbing because the attacker in his own words mistook him for a neo nazi. apparently i looked like a neo nazi and got stabbed for it luckily i got my hands up to stop it so he only stabbed my hand. but what really happened is joshua bought a pocket money for the nearby store and accidentally stabbed himself in the arm so he came up with the way to hide the embarrassing situation by playing the victim of a hate crime and sometimes it gets as weird as this earlier this month a michigan state university student found a new saying on her door and immediately thought it was an act of intimidation and reported to the campus of forty's i want to be clear this type of behavior is not tolerated on our campus and noose is a symbol of intimidation and threat that has a horrendous history in america well it turned out to be
a tad more innocent turns out the news that was found hanging outside a dorm room was actually just a leather shoes lace and messy says the shoe lace and it's match found outside the dorm were packaged in a way that someone could perceive them to look similar to a noose one of the most powerful of emotions one of the most powerful and frankly one of the most destructive emotions is the idea of victimhood certainly there are ways to even get money from the government for being a victim there are ways to get other benefits for being a victim and so they gather there's definitely something to that and i think that is incredibly destructive i would say that the first answer a wiser or such a rising fake a crimes is that they want discredit there's home they're invested in this narrative that donald trump is responsible for creating this wave of hate crimes because he's emboldening the racist he's a racist himself he's a white supremacist according to this narrative by the left so therefore they want to show that he's
a bold in these races so therefore they want to publish that crimes to make it seem like that's the case. crowds have been gathering in somalia's capital in a show of unity against terror the series of deadly attacks in mogadishu on saturday with the worst in the country's history. i. thought. it was. somalia's deadliest attack to date saw two truck bombs hit market issue killing more than three hundred people officials believe an al qaeda affiliate group al-shabaab is responsible they also say it might have been carried out in retaliation for u.s. led operations in the country for the last twenty five years the pentagon has
rotated more than twenty five thousand soldiers in the region are members of the somali community in the u.s. are questioning the white house's lack of response to the tragedy i call it our nine eleven eleven of somali people we are also today questioning our own president trumps. lack of response if this attack has targeted people by their faith or other races we believe he would have made an immediate comment on his social media or in another form a statement when we were britain's foreign secretary boris johnson says his country will stand with somalia against terror addressing parliament he had this to say about the attacks we speak at our house we wish to join me in condemning the atrocity in mogadishu on saturday which claimed at least two hundred eighty one lives those who inflicted this heinous act of terrorism only thriving capital city achieve nothing except to demonstrate their own wickedness however johnson's comments about another african country libya recently sparked controversy he
described the water on region as a possible business opportunity but sidestepped making apology for his remarks. because. this. is how you. mean by anything. but johnson isn't the first politician to infer a. that recent war zones and investment shouldn't be a profitable combination africa has tremendous. potential money for. going to your country is trying to get rich i could graduate you this spending a lot of money in south sudan for example documents leaked to the guardian newspaper over the summer revealed that cigarette giant british american tobacco made plans to launch itself that just two days
before south sudan gained independence from the north off to years of civil war and millions killed the u.k. serious fraud office is now looking into a form of b. eighty employees allegations that the company was involved in bribery and corruption in africa. tech companies use africa as a supplier of mind to minerals like gold and titanium there will vital to the production of small phones but in the democratic republic of congo these minerals are sometimes sold by groups on the u.s. government's now changing the law in order to make it easier for companies to buy so-called conflict minerals and holiday for consumers to trace the. and although so may not quite be the next dubai libyan oil fields are slowly beginning to swing back into action with some help from abroad back in april
italy's state oil company teamed up with libya's to reopen the l. fields site in the west of the war torn country it's only just happened to be part of the coalition that intervened to overthrow moammar gadhafi government in two thousand and eleven amongst all this for a strong sense comments as a reminder that war can be horrific for some and lucrative for others. well for more on these and plenty of other stories. i'll be back with the latest headlines at the top of the hour see this. here's what people have been saying about rejected in the senate it's the law on
ourselves the only show i go out of my way to run you know what it is that really packs a punch oh yeah it is the john oliver of our two year marriage is doing the same we are apparently better than nothing. and see people you've never heard of low or down to the next president of the world bank so very. seriously he sent us an e-mail. the big difference between. president obama policy president obama was in gauging iran the regional issues he was after gauging the theater on like you know why do you want to come to international negotiations and see the. president.
must. seem. funny but. has been passed bringing austerity measures to overcome the crisis. of federal american board is supposed to govern puts a rico. does the independent candidate she's determined to defy washington in many view the federal board as a humiliation. can be able to. set up a. the system that is. considered.
united states. to its status as a free associated state doesn't have the same rights as other states that's why it's not allowed to declare bankruptcy. that's the paradox of put a rico its citizens are american but the territory is treated differently. and. so if. we want to fit. the model. to pay back its debts to american creditors.
the country's biggest public university has announced another round of budget cuts students and lecturers have been affected by austerity for five years. five million euros. the same with the serial the modern no it hasn't been you know many thoughts you're. sitting there when i decided that it. was weird and i think i see that it was sort of get out there was this enough but i said nothing to misguide it that way it. was nothing a little bit of an. episode or so but that's it was it.
looking like the last it was going to. look at this it was a big thing it was a. little. it was like a little bit early i was. five twenty three and no longer receives a university scholarship. to complete studies she had to take out a six thousand dollars loan. to. do this in. the same resentment of the disability. second set. this was getting really i was like inside. the public university isn't the only one affected by the austerity policy. fifty
kilometers from the capital school had to shut down in twenty forty and her aunt was a teacher that. she still has the keys to the school. ok now your kid and financial get ready. to go to say. you. and i someday i might finally be settled as going to get lost at sea and i'm. going. to go get into. somewhat. of a polo. one that i gave you know how do you know of it i don't know i don't know it's a little dca least the couples a lot of what the beat of our own. is
. going on gonna sound was. a daily one thousand i thought on there but i'm all for going off you know pasta you know me and b.p.c. . me that we talk about the moment not to go out i have to be a few i try to see it done no denying it they will out on me too and can we were no biggie so you know maybe call it. my little secrets audio tape on top of this unite the broken stick with us so you know. because of its debt the government has already closed down one hundred fifty schools on the island. spread so far worried about the future. symbols that what a lovely idea there is to them. but i. am not going to sing.
the school closures have added to. i believe village now seems empty. but capital industry and tourism had long been the. development engine. but eradicating tax benefits for american companies drove the ricoh into crisis its unemployment is twice as high as the usa is. how do you know. how they don't want them. to repay our student loan hardly as a social worker. for ten hours
a week she helps seniors in need. us to go. back and when you add them along that's. funny. how you. are going to say i. also see. he. is sixty eight years old and he doesn't receive a pension. he still works as a painter. was. really going to be a. great deal. with the we. were this is going to close to where it's going to be going to really develop with
. are going to continue to see in the. old dog. or whether you. know we're going to be in the. army were there we're in the early years with the superdome with your design only good solutions you're going to see. bilbo and damn toys. and it was a big idea. to sort of be in the. classroom maybe out side like let's say wow columbians how. does he get up a little getting sidestep or going to get in and gamble but i didn't get. him put on the cross he went out there looking tatum o'neal possibly will.
but also did to the relationship between kids it was proved suggested no proof and a fairly strong one there were two thousand and seven balls in the study it's a very extensive study done by a well respected scientist. do chemicals that down the advertising. really increase the risk of cancer or means are known to infuse damage in the larger test is it a shared skepticism they do not believe that risk is is truly by independent scientists so did the meat industry paid you for this i received some compensation for my time as well as the others why is that in the meat lobby definitely do like
young lecturer giovanni is handing out hot meals on the rio piedras campus. to some of. you have come here into the sun. there's a long line he hands out hundreds of meals every day and he said yes when i said. we're. going to see that you've been with you and. they want to see that also to my son you know but i mean that with the ghetto i got the. telephone make up for them on a simple. going to a lot of. work that's what he said i think they call it the flamenco phenomena for them and i've done little to most of us you know.
also. a boy. ruth and adrian the two young activists here as well. that. had he went out i didn't think and being in the nanoparticle me and the they were nominated our son was really easy to have been able to play badminton and not. have an irish man and. he could not believe that we have a. son. only. this year ruth wasn't able to find a job. she lives on three hundred thirty euros in public assistance. yeah it was a capital barricade that i had a. welcome back now russia's president vladimir putin is answering questions at a prayer session at the annual discussion club in the russian resort of sochi taken
us what we will do we will engage in tit for tat if it's needed or if they are trying to restrict their activities of our media we will respond accordingly in the same way i gainst them. just. on the media that all of the international media where the west is very very strong . but. i have a good deal of experience on that from my days in office and subsequently. the alternative media developed by russia and china is to this is closing the gap which is a very very good news i must also tell you that i know that the order to reach is lot of homes in america and so does the. so the gap is closing and this alternative availability of media is as good for all of us good for the western audience good for four for our audience so i guess we are we're going to to
better days in terms of the. free floor for information. you know. what. you're welcome because of. what you want to. reach a continuum of when you're meeting last year went against the backdrop of a serious situation in the situation around aleppo and this year at the start of the year we've launched the us to the talks this used to resolve the syrian crisis and for the first time in the capital of kazakhstan and asked to nervously. the representatives of the various conflicting parties came together as well as the representatives of the grandest of this process russia turkey and iran. i know the has been some developments several rounds of negotiations and you've adopted certain documents how do you assess. this intermediary results of the us to the
talks and one more point against the backdrop of all of this we can see. that the crisis in the middle east. is taking a new shape that is you mentioned the kurdish referendum in northern iraq the military operation in kirkuk. and the changes in the situation in syria. and how do you see the prospects for the further surrenders aleutian how do you assess the current situation in the middle east. well first of all when with regards to the syrian peace process and they are asked to nab roses i would like to express our gratitude to kazakstan and miss another bio of us for providing us with this platform not only us but all of our badness but as denies that only a place where we meet. it is also very good for us because the stand is neutral and
has never interfered in any domestic issues or processes in the region we're talking about it only that it has always been a very respected intermediary and this another buyer of actually took responsibility on a number of occasions to construct reconciliate. of the arguing parties at the negotiating table now as for the progress we see we see a lot of positive happening yes there are issues but on the whole we can see some positive results and the positions of turkey and iran and and the syrian government of course were able. to get to become closer to each other that we were able to bring their positions together on some in some areas. and the creation of deescalation zones is the most important result of the
astronaut process and the peace process in syria over recent years i have to say that other countries also contribute quite a lot towards this process even those countries that are not participating in the us on approaches but to influence and affect the process including the united states of america. but while. we have corporation and interaction with our american partners in this area of course we have some disagreements. but on the whole of this corporation this interaction has more positive than it does have negative and we were able to agree on some things for example the southern deescalation zone. where israeli interests and jordan interests are represented and
certainly this process wouldn't have been able to be so. positive without the contributions from such countries as arabia egypt. and. when jordan as i've said before but also a number of other countries smaller countries but still better significant countries and qatar so to speak qatar as well. so what are the prospects. that we can see. or we can see that in the near future we will finish the terrorists. in the region but. at the same time it's impossible to say that we can just to destroy all terrorism you know terrorism has very deep roots it's rooted in
many countries and their problems and without. them without proper education which is also quite an important source of terrorism. and we cannot completely destroy terrorism and even if we destroy the hotbed of terrorism in syria it doesn't mean that the terrorist threat is over it's the opposite we have to be ever more vigilant. another thing is we have to be very well aware of the situation between the opposition and the government in syria we see progress but it's still very slow people do not trust one another i hope that we will be able to overcome this and the creation of deescalation zones will help with that and i hope that will proceed to a new. stage in this process and we want to have
a process in syria that will include all the groups all the parties including the opposition and if we can manage that with the support of getting to states and original states including saudi arabia and of course with the help of the united states and egypt. we'll make sure the next step towards a political resolution and then perhaps to the creation of a new syrian constitution and this is the plan. of the species there is a threat. of that happening but as i've said and will not want to divide syria what we want to see is after the deescalation zones active the people controlling the situation in the zone start contacting communicating with damascus and the government and this is happening already in the south of damascus
there is a small territory controlled by the. by the opposition and this people go to damascus every day to work so they have to cooperate and i hope that we'll see the same practices employed in other areas. where instruction and for more on president putin's speech we can now cross live to r.t. as daniel hawkins who's also mine. i bow down also i want more has the president assad. well kate he's in the middle of his question as you can see that in questions from the various figures in the audience one particularly interesting one that popped up of course was the question of media free media freedom of press freedom in particular r.t. . in chief going to someone on describe the situation russian international media in part of that being r.t. faces across the world in particular in america and in the u.k.
in america for example where there are threats to make r.t. register r.t. america register under the foreign agents act where hillary clinton recently allegedly described artie's alleged to fear it's russian interference in the election as a kin to september the eleventh and in the u.k. where foreign secretary boris johnson chastised labor m.p.'s for appearing on the channel saying this was simply legitimizing so-called russian propaganda reply that any oppression of media if it was legal media was a bad move for press freedom he said that comparing these allegations against r.t. influencing elections choosing presidential candidates will simply ridiculous due to the fact that the anglo-saxon hold on international media was in comparable to the power that has its battle of david and goliath and the fact that it was the putin that r.t. has become more popular has been a thorn in the side of the western establishment he finished by saying that any
moves against r.t. america in terms of registration under foreign agents act or any other moves would bring similar mirror measures in russia as well so that's the latest we can give you from that press conference. r.t. in the news a lot today it seems that you hawkins in such a thank you. as spain prepares to her vocabulary has autonomy arthur regency to confirm his declaration of independence were suspended it's not cancelled and we'll have more on that story after the break. the us economy is dead because competition is dead because free markets are dead because free money is being given to the lords and oligarchs and there is no small
